The US will need to play considerably better today. Sure, it's nice to talk about the US potentially advancing with a win today, but the oddsmakers, the guys whose livelihood actually does ride on the match, have Portugal as heavy favorites. A $5 bet on the US would net you $16 if they won. The same $5 on Port would win you $4.
Hopefully Bradley plays better and we get some pressure on their replacements on the back line.
